Posted on January 21, 2014
Ester armchair is a mix of elegance, ergonomics and functionality. The care for details is everywhere. The seat is made of polyurethane foam with elastic belts on a steel structure. The result is a precious monolith made of leather complemented by refined die-casted aluminum legs.
Ester furnishes the restaurant Alain Ducasse
The Dorchester – London
The elegant Ester armchair was chosen for the furnishing of the 3-stars Michelin restaurant Alain Ducasse in the prestigious Dorchester Hotel in Mayfair, in the centre of London. The commended chef has created a timeless place, a unique experience that offers the excellence of the contemporary French cuisine in a modern, refined and comfortable environment, thanks also to the accompaniment of the orchestra of the leader Nicolas Defremont.
Ester chosen for the reopening of the historical jewelry in the 5th Avenue
Van Cleef & Arpels – New York
After important renovation works, the reopening of the historical boutique Van Cleef & Arpels was celebrated last December. The jewelry is situated at 744 of the legendary Fifth Avenue in New York. The concept was outstandingly realized by Jouin Manku design studio, a collaboration between the designer Patrick Jouin and the architect Sanjit Manku, who had already designed the interior of Place Vendome Boutique in Hong Kong. The aim of the prestigious French jewelry is to celebrate the tight relationship with the Big Apple, born way back in 1930 when it first crossed the Atlantic Ocean. The Studio expressed this subtle alchemy through the Art Deco architecture: geometrical shapes and rising vertical lines highlight the boutique style where Ester armchair by Jouin is harmoniously set in.
The design of this chair is the outcome of the experiences that I could achieve since I started designing restaurants. Ester armchair is a mix of elegance, ergonomics and functionality. The attention to details is everywhere. The result is a precious monolith made of leather complemented by refined die-casted aluminum legs.»
